The Republican National Committee will host its January 2020 meetings at Trump National Doral, President Trump's 800-acre golf club in Miami, an RNC spokesperson said, per the Washington Post.

Why it matters: Last month, Trump cancelled plans to host the G-7 summit at his Doral resort. Throughout his time in office, Trump has faced allegations of using his office to benefit his business.

Zoom out: The RNC has previously hosted events and fundraisers at Doral, and Trump properties have taken in more than $1.5 million from the committee since 2015, according to CNN.

Of note: Doral's net operating income dropped by 69% over two years as of May, per a Washington Post analysis. The flagship resort produces more revenue — $75 million annually — than any of the other Trump properties.

President Trump's private lawyers asked Chief Justice John Roberts on Friday to stay an appeals court decision giving the House Oversight and Reform Committee the OK to subpoena the president's personal and business financial records.

The big picture: The request comes a day after Trump asked the Supreme Court to keep his longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, from turning over his tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney. Trump has filed at least three lawsuits to block the release of his tax returns.

The Justice Department said it supported President Trump's Supreme Court fight to block his tax returns from being disclosed to a New York prosecutor, Reuters reports.

Why it matters: The court filing comes one week after Trump filed an appeal individually to reverse a lower court's ruling that directed his accounting firm, Mazars LLP, to hand eight years worth of tax returns to the prosecutor. Separately, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked the House's subpoena for Trump's tax returns this week.
